Probiotics have been suggested to be involved in both prevention and treatment of various human cancers. Anticancer Immunity: Reviewing the Potential of Probiotics explains biochemical mechanisms of anticancer immunity exerted by probiotics in various human cancers. It presents edited chapters focused on the evidence of probiotic use against human cancers through several animal and human studies.

This volume consists of 11 chapters. The volume continues from the previous entry with chapters focused on probiotics’ anticancer immunity in specific cancers such as, bladder cancer, renal cell carcinoma, prostate cancer, lymphomas, pancreatic cancer, oral cancer and oropharyngeal cancers. The book concludes with chapters that inform readers about the value of prebiotics, postbiotics and postbiotics in cancer therapy as adjuvants and immunotherapeutic agents.

Key features

Researchers in immunology, biochemistry, oncology, molecular biology; cancer immunotherapy specialists


The fourth volume of Frontiers in Cancer Immunology [Anticancer Immunity: Reviewing the Potential of Probiotics] consists of total 11 chapters, which are focused on the role of probiotics in exerting the anticancer immunity towards cancer of prostate, bladder, pancreas, oral and oropharyngeal region, thyroid, lymphoma, and renal cell carcinoma. In addition, the roles of gut microbiota in the dysbiosis and management and/or prevention of these cancers are also put forward.

The subsequent few chapters discuss how probiotics can be used as adjuvants and can be used to prepare different formulations to generate anticancer immunity. Further, the use of prebiotics and postbiotic has also been discussed to aid in anticancer immunity. The final chapter highlights the future challenges in developing probiotic-based anticancer immunotherapy and its applications.

We believe that this book will certainly provide recent updates and scientific evidence to support the role of probiotics in anticancer immunity against various cancers. The book would be beneficial for the academic as well as research fraternity such as academicians, scientists, budding researchers, and health professionals.

We editors are thankful to all the authors for providing interesting insights into probiotics in anticancer immunity towards various cancers. We are also grateful to the publisher for the successful publication of this book.
